The Addicts Want To Know: All About You the 2 Year Blogiversary Poll

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Can you believe it’s almost our 2 Year Anniversary?!  Yea, we can’t either!  We’ve been blogging here at TSTO Addicts for nearly 2 years!  How crazy is that?!  On Friday August 14th we will be celebrating 2 Years since we starting bringing you Tapped Out Coverage!  Wow does time fly!

So…we’ve got some fun posts and things in store for you guys in the coming days (plus loads of Monorail Coverage) but before we can kick things off we figured we’d do what we did to celebrate our 6th month and 1 year Blogiversary….get to know more about YOU!  (this is a feature we know a lot of you love)   Yes that’s right…we want to know more about our AMAZING Community of Tappers we have here at TSTO Addicts so we’ve put together another little poll ….the results of which we’ll share in the coming days!   So we hope that you’ll take a minute to answer the poll questions so we can learn more about you, and you can learn more about each other!

Oh and don’t forget to ask your questions to us to learn more about Bunny, Wookiee and I!

Thanks for being a part of the AWESOME Community here at TSTO Addicts & for taking the time to participate in our poll!  You guys seriously rock!! 🙂

Did YOU participate in any of our last polls? (6 months, 1 year)  What do you think the results will show this time?  How long have you been a part of Addicts?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you! 🙂

Monorail is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Update: A Patch just game through (around 5:30pm EDT) that fixes the Conductor Homer Glitch.  So you should be able to tap away without issue (ie crashing) now. Note: HOMER CRASH ISSUE…..DO NOT TAP ON HOMER ONCE YOU UNLOCK CONDUCTOR HOMER.  You MUST complete more tasks before Homer will work.  So again DO NOT TAP ON HOMER ONCE YOU UNLOCK CONDUCTOR HOMER. (i.e Do not do the Train of Fools Task)  If you do your game will crash…just be patient and wait….the game will guide you, it always does.  I’m working through it myself as fast as I can with super slow internet at work…thankfully it’s on Android now so I hopefully can move a little faster. See below…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s FINALLY here!  After over a year and a half of waiting (remember Homer teased it way back in Jan of 2014) it’s finally Monorail time in Springfield! monorailappstore This is an APP STORE UPDATE so remember to check your App Store/Google Play Store to download, as it will NOT automatically download in your game for you.

As of 12:20pm EDT it’s currently live on iOS, we’ll update when we see it on other devices.

As of 1:05pm EDT it’s currently live on Android.

As of 1:50pm EDT it’s currently live on Kindle Back with more in a bit…just needs to download on my super slow work internet 😉

Homer should auto start things with a task to build the Springfield Dump (which is Free)…after the Dump is placed nothing else will appear in the store until you complete Same As It Ever Was (which comes after A Rail of One City Pt. 4)

2015-08-11 17.12.37 Oh and there’s NEW LAND Available (thanks for pointing it out Tapebelt!) two new strips!  Details are below…. Continue reading

It’s Coming!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Remember this teaser from last week?


Well buckle your seat belts because it’s coming!  Update is in the files…BUT it’s an app store update.  So it’ll be a few hours before it hits our app stores to play.  However, be prepared because the train is making a stop in Springfield!

What are your thoughts on the upcoming update?  How do you think it’ll play out?  Excited to see it?  Or nervously awaiting to see how it will play out?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Add Friends for the Monorail Event

Update: The Monorail Even is over and this thread was getting pretty full, so we’ve started a brand new add friends feed.  You can check it out here.  Comments on this thread are now disabled.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well new event is on it’s way, so you know what that means…time for an all new Add Friends Feed!

So now…hit up this post with your Origin ID’s and Add Me Requests!  Who wants to be first?

Pssssst….If you’re looking for a thread to find neighbor-eenos who WON’T vandalize you check out this Add-Me page…now Graffiti free! 🙂

And remember…if you’re looking for ways you can THANK your neighbors for visiting, tell them you LOVE their designs…or even yell at them for stealing your designs…you can hit up our THANK YOU Thread!  The only place in the TSTO-verse where you can freely Thank and Admire your TSTO Friends and Neighbors!

So now it’s time to share your towns with your fellow Tappers as we prepare for the Monorail’s arrival!


Should I Spend Donuts on the Stunt Bike?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 56 hit our devices last week, and the new level brought another vehicle for our Springfields, this time in the form of a two-wheel vehicle…the Stunt Bike!  Now I know you may be trying to decide if this is worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it!  We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Stunt Bike to YOUR Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this hog to YOUR Springfield!

Add Friends- Who Pledge Not to Vandalize You! Part 10

Update: This thread was getting pretty full, so we’ve started a new one here.  Comments on this one have now been disabled.

See the notes below about treating each other with respect on this thread.  If we continue to see the disturbing trend we’re seeing of attacking others over vandalism this will be the last non-vandalism thread we do.  And comments here will be cut off.  Treat each other with respect.  Just because players don’t like to be vandalized doesn’t mean they’re playing the game wrong.  Everyone has the right to play TSTO the way they want to, DO NOT disrespect each other because if it.

Also, accidents happen.  Just because someone tags you doesn’t mean it was on purpose and doesn’t give you the right to attack them.  Again, treat each other with respect or this thread will be shutdown and not replaced.  Thank you. 

Well…it’s that time.  The old vandalism thread was getting quite full & it’s time to start fresh once again!

Note: Vandalism is currently disabled in the game…we’re not sure if it’ll come back, but for now it’s gone.  So really this thread isn’t all that necessary at the moment…BUT I know there’s a bunch of you who like the idea of this thread so we’ll keep it going for you guys (for now).  But this may be the last one if Vandalism doesn’t come back…

Do you hate getting graffiti in your Springfield?  Are you tired of cleaning up after other people’s fun, at your expense?  Are you someone that NEVER Vandalizes other towns?  Are you super concerned about your Righteousness rating…no matter how many Training Walls you build?  Well this is the Add Friends Thread for You!

Now before we get started, there is something we must go over… Continue reading
